        "SHUM" ALFONS VILA (Sant Martí de Maldà, Lérida 1897-Cuernavaca, 1967). "Tan poc que m'agrada fer el os" and "Materamabilis". Pair of mixed media on paper. Signed and titled in the lower margin. Slight damp and adhesive stains. Measurements: 40 x 29 cm; 51 x 41 cm (frame). Caricaturist and cartoonist, he was known as Shum, Juan Bautista Acher, El Poeta or El artista de las manos rotas. His anarchist militancy led to several imprisonments and exile at the end of the Civil War. He published in Solidaridad Obrera, Justicia Social, La Campana de Gracia, La Opinión, La Humanidad, Rambla, L'Esquella de la Torratxa, Papitu, and Viva !, among others. In October 1922, he was sentenced to death for his involvement in an attempted assassination attempt against General Martínez Anido and for the explosion that took place while they were handling some devices, which caused the destruction of the building and the death of five people in Toledo Street in Barcelona. The conviction sparked a campaign of solidarity calling for the abolition of capital punishment, in which such prominent figures as Máximo Gorki, Errico Malatesta, Santiago Ramón y Cajal, Valle-Inclán and, above all, the writer Concha Espina, who personally requested a pardon for the military directorate, took part. The campaign also included a monographic exhibition of his drawings at the Ateneo Enciclopédico Popular. Finally, his sentence was commuted to life imprisonment, and he was amnestied in 1931, when Victoria Kent became director general of prisons for the Republic. In 1934 he was appointed a member of the Barcelona Museums Board. He was a member of the Group of Six together with Helios Gómez, Alfred Pascual y Benigani, Marcelino Puerta y Fernanda, Lluís Elias y Bracons and Josep Bartolí and participated in the Union of Professional Draughtsmen. He fought on the front during the Civil War and went into exile in France at the end of the conflict. He subsequently lived in the Dominican Republic, Cuba, the United States and finally in Cuernavaca, Mexico, where he died. El dibujante anarquista contains texts by Josep Maria Cadena, Lluis Solà and Jaume Capdevila in Kap art. Through it it is possible to reconstruct. The peculiar life story of our man, which includes a career as brief as it was catastrophic in Barcelona anarchism, followed by his flight from Spain and his passage through different countries until he ended up in Mexico, where he died.
